BEST QUESTION:

It appears to be my Asus Ranger Maximus VII kicked the bucket last week. I don't recall the specific CPU and lost the documentation in a move. Tracking down another Ranger 7 is demonstrating troublesome, would a Ranger 8 work with my current CPU? The 7 resembles a LGA 1150 and the 8 is LGA 1151. I'm going to place a proposal in on a house in seven days so I'm attempting to minimize my expenses as low as could be expected.

BEST ANSWER:

They are not interchangable, you can't use CPU's in different sockets and every socket contains different bios to work with different CPU's. LGA 1151 is an Intel microprocessor compatible socket which supports the Intel Skylake and the Kaby Lake CPU microarchitectures.

LGA 1151 is designed as a replacement for the LGA 1150 (known as Socket H3). LGA 1151 has 1151 protruding pins to make contact with the pads on the processor vs The LGA 1150 socket has 1150 protruding pins that make contact with the pads on the bottom side of the processor and the voltage regulator has again been moved from the CPU die to motherboard.
